Remembering Great Apes
Margot Raggett (Author)
Description- The stunning third book in the Remembering Wildlife charity series - The aim of the creators is to make the most beautiful photographic book ever seen on a species and to use that to raise awareness of the plight facing that animal and also funds to protect it - Features images generously donated by many of the world's top wildlife photographers - All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to projects working to protect great apes in Africa The 'great apes' - bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans, are our closest cousins. Indeed anyone who has ever had the privilege of spending time with them will confirm the remarkable similarities and the deep and moving connection they felt. And yet we humans, the fifth great ape, seem callously able to turn a blind eye to their destruction for the sake of our own rapacious greed. Land, money, cheap ingredients and even components for our mobile phones are prioritized over our family, in a seemingly relentless and insatiable grab for what 'we' want, no matter the consequences. Remembering Great Apes is time for us to say no, no more. We cannot, we will not, let this continue. It is a celebration of the beauty of these species and a cry from those who photograph and love them that things need to change, before it is too late. This is the third book in the groundbreaking Remembering Wildlife series, a project only made possible by the generous wildlife photographers and supporters who march with us in our determination to give wildlife a voice. We cannot, we simply will not remember wildlife in pictures.

About the Author
A former PR in London, when Margot Raggett saw a poached elephant in late 2014, she was so moved by that incident, that she founded the Remembering Wildlife project. This was a 'live-aid' moment for wildlife photographers, coming together for a fund-raising book entitled Remembering Elephants. Such was the success of this book that it was quickly followed up by Remembering Rhinos, Remembering Great Apes and Remembering Lions with Remembering Cheetahs due for publication in 2020. So far, more than 150 photographers have contributed to the series under the banner of 'Wildlife Photographers United', selling more than 16,000 copies and raising more than USD $800,000 for conservation projects in Africa and Asia.
